The first ever Jour Fixe in Villach was scheduled on the 28. July 2012. EYP-ers gathered in the lovely town of Villach to get informed about current activities in EYP Austria, as well as to share and discuss new ideas and plans.
After having learned about the upcoming European Youth Forum Tulln 2012, the EYP Days, the next EYP on Ski, the anniversary National Conference Linz 2013, and Jour Fixes, participants split up into two workshops. The first workshop gave an elaborate insight into the functioning of EYP Austria and EYP international. The second workshop brainstormed about ideas to engage more Austrian students in EYP.
We were all quite surprised about the findings of the two workshops. Finally, participants of the Jour Fixe were given a brief training ‘Applications 101’, which exemplified best and worst practices in writing applications for EYP sessions.
After the Jour Fixe, participants were invited to join some socialising at a nice Italian Trattoria nearby. We certainly hope to keep up the high quality of the Jour Fixes and look forward to the next one – of course in a different city in Austria.
